As the film industry continues to struggle in the US, Tom Cruise might just be the saviour the industry needs.
In leaked audio, Cruise is heard to be blasting workers on the set of Mission: Impossible for failing to physically distance.
In the audio released by the Sun tabloid, Cruise warns that anyone caught not following the rules to stay at least two metres away from others will be fired.
The film is currently being filmed in Britain.
Cruise also said: “If I see you doing it again, you’re f*cking gone and if anyone on this crew does it, that’s it … No apologies.”
In his tirade, Cruise spoke of the challenges the industry has faced during the coronavirus pandemic and how many people have lost jobs as a result.

Many Hollywood movies have either been delayed until after the pandemic is over or because of COVID-related delays on set.
Plenty of Hollywood celebrities have since been spotted in Australia shooting films or adverts.
Social media praised Cruise for his outburst, with previously non-Cruise fans changing their tune.
I hear a man standing up for the “normal man”. The “little people”. A man who doesn’t want those who could lose their home to they lose their job. I don’t think I’ve ever found myself on the side of Tom cruise, but this time I am. I wish someone in my organisation would do this.

He’s absolutely right, he’s taken the challenge on to shoot a movie in hard times and he’s very stressed being a producer, he’s just trying to safeguard people’s safety so they can finish the film and everyone gets paid, not just him! Good on you Tom!
